What Is a Hag Do?
A hag do or hag party is a coming together of all the younger wedding guests and rather than two separate pre-wedding parties, you get twice the number of friends all in one place. It's kind of like having the wedding but without the boring legal bits or older relatives to have to take into consideration. You can just have the party you want!
What Are The Benefits of a Hag Do?
A hag party makes sense for so many reasons...
- Shared Costs - Rather than two potentially expensive weekends ahead of the wedding, the groups can pool their resources for a massive weekend to remember.
- Twice the Fun - All those friends in couples get to party with their other half, all those single friends get to mingle. And create more future wedding bells perhaps?
- No Worries - No need for anyone to worry if everyone is enjoying a great time together. Win/win!

Battle of the Sexes
A joint hag party opens up all sorts of possibilities for the fun and games you can have. You can set your teams as hen vs stags or split the teams evenly, either way you'll be sure of plenty of competition and some brilliant laughs.
The other joy with a hag do is that you're not responsible for all the planning. Get in touch with the groom's best man and between you, you can hatch all manner of dastardly plans with suitable fun and games, plus surprises for the guests of honour.
You could go all out and not tell either of them your plans and totally surprise them when not only do they head to their respective hen/stag dos to meet everyone but they also find their other half and all their friends as well for one huge collaborative knees up!
